Description:

Ontario librariesÂ’ websites must conform to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

Outcomes:
Attendees will be able to complete basic manual checks of web content accessibility and explain why manual checking is necessary.
